Reproduction of a flintlock gun made of metal and wood with a loading and firing simulator mechanism.
The flintlock guns had a flint or flint stone, which, when the hammer was operated, produced the spark that ignited the gunpowder. All these guns required manual reloading of their ammunition after each shot. The ammunition, which was introduced through the hole of the cannon, consisted of gunpowder, projectile and paper block, which served as a cap to keep the previous two compressed inside the barrel.
These guns were used as weapons of self-defense until mid of the 19th century. Its effective range was short and they were frequently used as a complement to a sword or knife. Flintlock guns were prone to many problems compared to modern weapons, due to moisture or accidental firing.
In combat, these weapons were generally used for a single shot, since the reload method was very slow and there was no time to recharge. Therefore the fighters after firing were forced to take their sabers or swords or use the gun as a blackjack, since circumstances did not allow it to be recharged in time.
